Things to consider before removing the battery cover

  1. 1
    Do not hold the phone in the air while removing the back cover.
    It would be much safer if you lay it on a flat surface to prevent it from accidentally dropping.

  2. 2
    Lay your phone on a clean and soft surface.
    Though the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen is strong enough to withstand scratches, your screen protector may not be. Impurities and small particles may make a scratch on average screen protectors.

  3. 3
    The back cover is made of a flexible and high quality material.
    It should not break or chip off easily. That should not be a reason to remove it in a rush though. Being careful is always better.

Questions and Answers

My cover is not opening and i cant help in it?

It is very hard to remove,i tried the way you told but still

If you are having a hard time opening the back cover of your Samsung Galaxy S4, follow these procedures:

  • Make sure your finger nails can get through the gap as stated on this article. If your finger nails are too short, then you may not be able to pull the cover up.
  • You can also use a small hard object as a replacement for your finger nails. If your nails are too short, using objects that are small enough to fit into the gap but strong enough not to break when you use it as a lever to pull the back cover out. Just make sure that you do this slowly and securely so you won't damage your phone nor the cover.
  • Ask assistance from others. If you are too young, too weak, or for whatever other reasons, ask the help from someone who is more able. This will ensure that the job is done without causing damage to your device.
